So, I was going to make this a nice long detailed review, but I can't find time or the will to bring myself to do it. There are plenty of other excellent review out there of this device done by authors who are much more versed and well-written in mobile phone reviewing than I am. I apologize in advance if this isn't what you're looking for, but these are my few thoughts on the device.
I do NOT like this device. Plain and simple. That doesn't mean other people won't love it, but that's my take on this device, sadly.
Why you may ask? I wish I could tell you exactly. I trialed the N8 not too long before the E7 and I LOVED that device, everything except for the lack of hardware keyboard, so I figured I should be able to get on nearly as well with the E7. Oh how sadly mistaken was I. Here are a few things I didn't like about the device, though they may not be specific to the actual device itself, just the experience:
The positives? Not many, but here they are:
I wish I could say more. I really wish I knew exactly what it was about the device that I didn't like, but I can't. I've tried long and hard for the last few months to try and pin down exactly what it was about the device that I didn't like, but I couldn't. I'm not sure if it was how kludgy some operations felt with the device, or how the flip bothered me, or how the device just didn't seem to do well with orientation changes and the keyboard.
Sorry everyone, but this device was a miss with me. Between this and the N8, even without a hardware keyboard, I'd have to say the N8 is a much more stellar device.
